Olive Kitteridge (2014)

Frances McDormand as "Olive Kitteridge"

Oscar-winner Frances McDormand ("Fargo") and Oscar-nominee Richard Jenkins ("The Visitor") star in the four-part drama "Olive Kitteridge," adapted from Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, which spans 25 years.

The program depicts life in a coastal town and the affects of mental illness.
